    When should I check on a cast swarm?

    Look now. I have one similar. No brood and all the syrup stored in the one drawn frame they have The bees are all fanning like crazy on the top bars so I'm sure they are queen less. They are on the potting shed roof and they will be united with the established first swarm next to them

    Alighting Boards

    That's a neat modification. It would stop bees hitting the floor at speed when they exit on a flow too

    They are beautiful. I look out for them on the mulleins but never see them.

    Transferring a nuc to a hive

    No super till 7 or 8 frames full of brood. They don’t need a super of honey for winter. They will put it into the brood box.

    What did you do in the Apiary today?

    Yesterday. United two colonies Checked one that had requeened itself after the queen was killed/damaged by the beekeeper! Small queen marked. She seems to be laying worker brood OK so will just keep an eye on her for now

    Did I just invent this? Easy propolis removal...

    Think again. I’m talking about radiotherapy and the therapeutic dose for Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy is between 60 and 73 Gy. Google if you don’t believe me.
